The first settlers of the region were the Vacceos, Celt Iberian people of horsemen and warriors who managed to evade Roman invasions. German Barbarians invaded later, but were the Arabs who razed the region to the ground, turning into a desert in the 8th century... Almanzor was responsible for the destruction of Trigueros de Santa María del Castillo, stronghold and fortified site, that even now the layout of its wall can be seen. With the Reconquest in the 10th century people from other regions came here and their union with the survival groups gave birth to today’s’ population. At that time, this region was the foundation upon which several monasteries, castles and medieval fortresses were built. When the area was settled, in 911, San Tirso Monastery was built on the same site San Miguel Church currently occupies. The existence of vineyards owners is proven by the appearance of the first documents... Countless grape varieties were brought by travellers and settlers… The Pilgrims’’ route to Santiago was one of the access way through which pilgrims from the neighbouring countries arrived… Many of the new vineyards were promoted by the Manors and the Cistercian Order Monasteries that stood along the Pisuerga River.

Cigales is a small AC north-west of Ribero del Douero and this family owned estate has been producing quality wines since the early 1990’s. This 100% Tempranillo shows dark fruit and floral qualities with sweet, ripe, solid tannins on the finish.
